We all know and love the iconic Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream for being a staple in our skincare and make-up routine. The iconic base is known for deeply hydrating and giving the skin that ultimate post-facial glow we're all craving.
Charlotte Tilbury began her career as a make-up artist creating looks for famous models, fashion shows and campaigns. As well as perfecting the ultimate glowy base with Hollywood Flawless Filter, plus the dreamiest lip shade in the biz with Pillow Talk, the legendary make-up artist used to mix together her secret recipe moisturiser, which models and celebrities dubbed 'Charlotte's Secret Magic Cream'.
Known for its instant results, it's long been raved about in the beauty community. Since starting her brand in 2013, we can now all discover the wonder of Magic Cream.
Is there a dupe for Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream?
We all love the original icon, but £75 can be a bit steep for us gals who have bills to pay. Luckily for you, we've found some killer dupes that give very similar results to the famous cream without pulling too hard on the purse strings, for when you can't afford the OG.
Finding an exact dupe can be challenging, but the trick is to search for a moisturiser that has the same ingredients to guarantee that a product can perform in a similar way.
Thanks to the magic of TikTok and the brains of our beauty team, we've discovered a couple of new products that compare to Charlotte's original moisturiser. Top of the list? The Revolution Pro Miracle Cream (£10). Revolution's sell-out Miracle Cream is a much-loved dupe for Magic Cream, with millions of views on TikTok.
Since going viral, Revolution's dupe sells out quicker than we snapped up a beauty advent calendar this year, but if you LOVE the Miracle Cream, you'll be pleased to hear there's an even BIGGER pot now available. It costs just £18 (still a mere fraction of the original, iconic product), but it'll last for blimmin' ages. Shop the supersized version here.
We've done what we do best and put together a selection of our favourite dupes that compare to the original Magic Cream.
